7ipon us the People of England, zvhe/i firjl he fent Yoiir_ Alajejifs Royal Per/on to rule and reign over us. For zvhereas it 
•was the ExpeSlation of many ^ who w'ijhcd not zvell unto our Sion, that, upon the Jetting of that bright Occidental Star ^een 
Elizabeth, of moji happy Memory, fome thick and palpable Clouds of Darknefs luould fo have overjliadoived this Land, that Men 
Jljould have been in Doubt luhich IVay they %vere to ivalk, and that itficuld hardly be known zvho ivas to direSi the unfettled State; 
the appearance of Tour Majejly, as of the Sun in his Strength, inftantly difpelled thofe fuppofed aid furmifed Alifts, and gave unto 
all that were well aff^eftcd exceeding^ Caufc of Comfort ; efpecially when we beheld the Government eflahlijhed in Your Hi^nefs, and 

companied v.nth Peace and Tranquillity at Home and Abroad, 



Tour hopeful Seed, by an undoubted Title, and this alfo accompanied v.nth Peace and Tranquillity i 



G' 




in Heaven, 

Then not tofufei- this to fall to the Ground, but rather'h tale it up, and to continue it in thai State wherein the famovs Prede- 
eejor of Tour Highnefs did leave it; nay, to go forward with the Confidence and Refolution of a Man in maintaining the Truth 
^yChrift, and propagating it far a?id near, is that which hathfo bound and firmly knit the Hearts of all Tour Majefty's loyal and 
religious People unto You, that llur very Name is precious among them; their Eye doth behold You zvith Confort, and fhev bkfs You 
in their Hearts, as that fiiytliified Perfon, who, under God, is the immediate Author of their true Happincfs. And this "their Con- 
tentment doth not diminijh or decay, but every Day increafeth and taketh Strength, when, they obferve, that the 2eal of Your Majefv 
toward the Houfe of God doth not fiack, or go backward, but is more and more kindled, manifefting itf elf /.broad in thefartheft Parts 
fl/Chriftendom, by zvriting in Defence of the Truth, {which hath given fuch a Bhw unto that Man of Sin as will not be healed,) 
and every Day at Home, by religious and learned Difcourfe, by frementing the Houfe of God, by hearing the Word preached, by 
therijhing the Teachers thereof, by caring for the Church, as a moft tender and loving nurfing Father. 

There are infinite Arguments of this right Chriftian and religious Aff'emon in Ycur Maiefty; hut none is mere forcible to ctechre 
it to others than the vehement and perpetuated Defire of the accompliftnng and publijoing of this Work, which now, with all Humility, 
'we prefent unto _ Your Majefty, For when Your Highnefi had once, out of deep Judgment, apprehended how convenient it was, that 
cut 0} the Original facrcd Tongues, together with comparing of the Labours, both in our ozon and other foreign Language^, of many 
zvorthy Men zvho zvrnt before us, there Jhould be One more exaSf Tranjlation of the Hoh Scriptures into the Englifh Tcngx^e, Your 
Majejly did never defifl to urge and to excite thofe to ivhom it zvas commended, that the Work might behafaned, and that the Bufinel\ 
might be expedited info decent a Manner as a Matter ofjuch Importance might jujlly require, ' 

And now at laji, by the Mercy of God, and the Continuance of our Labours, it being hroin^ht unto fv.ch a Conclufian, as that zve 
have great Hopes that the Church of England fiiall reap good Fruit thereby, zve hold it our Duty to' ojfer it tn Your Majefty, not 
cnly as to our King and Scvcreign, but as to the principal Mover and Author of the Work; humbly craving of Your moft fac'red Ma~ 
jelly, that, Jince Things of this polity have ever been fubjeSt to the Cenjufes of ill-tneaning and 'difcontenled Perfom, it may receive 
approbation and Patronage from fo learned and judicious a Prince as Your Highnefs is ; luhofe Allotvance and Acceptance of our La^ 
boursJl.mil more honour and encourage us, than all the Calumniations and hard Interpretations of other Men Jhall difmay us. So that 
if, on the one Side,wefimllbe traduced by Popifh PcrJ'ons at Home or Jbroad, zvho therefore zv! 11 malign us, becaufe zve are poor 
Inftruments to make God s holy Truth to be yet more and more knozvn unto the People, zvhom they defire ftill to keep in Ignorance 
and Darknefs; or if on the other Side, ive JImII be maligned by Jelf-c one cited Brethren, zvho run their ozvn Ways, and give Liking 
-unto nothing but zv hat is framed by thcmfelves, and hammered on their Anvil; zve may reft fecure, fupported zvithin by the Truth 
and Innocency of a good Conjcience, having walked the Ways of Simplicity and Integrity, as before' the Lord; and fuflained without 
by the poiverfulProteaion of Your Majejly s Grace and Favour, which ivill ev.r give Countenance to honcft and Chriftian Endea- 
vours againji bitter Cenjures and uncharitable hnputations. 

The Lord of Heaven and Earth bkfs Your Majefty with many and happy Day: ; that, as his heavenly Hand hath enriched Your 
Highnejswith m.any Jvigular and extraordinary Graces, fo You may be the Wonder of the World in this laHer Are for Hap.

' ' 20 And llaac was forty yearsold when he took 
Rebekah to wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian 
of Padiui-aram, the fifter to Laban tlie Syrian. 

2 1 And Ifaac entreated the Lord for his wife, 
becaufe fhe ::'.:j barren : and the Lord was enti'cat- 
ed of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived. 

22 And the diildren ftniggled togetlier witliin

went to entjuire of the L/)RD. 

23 And the Lord faid unto her. Two nations ai-e 
in tj-iv womb, and two manner of people fhall be 
fepanitcd from thy bowels : and the one people fhall 
be fconger tlian the other people ; and ' the elder fhall 
ferve the younger. 

24 ^ And when her days to be delivered were 
fulfilled, behold, there zvere twins in her 'womb. 

25 And the firft came out red, all over like an 
hairy garment ; and they called his name Efau. 

I 26 And after that came his brother out, and ' his 
ha;id took hold on Efau's heel j and his name was 
called Jacob: and Ifaac was threefcore years old 
when fhe bare them. 

27 Aiid tlie boys grew : and Efau was a cunning 
hunter, a man of the field ; and Jacob was a plain 
man, dwelling in tents. 

28 And Ifaac loved Efau, becaufe ■{■ he did eat of 
wj bis venifbn ; but Rebekah loved Jacob. 

29 C And Jacob fod pottage : and Efau came from 
the field, and he was faint. 

3^ And Efau faid to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, 
•:,„.f with that fame rsdi pottage ; for I am faint; there- 
y fore was liis name called Edom. 

31 And Jacob faid, Sell me this day thy birthright. 

32 And Efau faid, Behold, I cot -fat the point to 
die; and what profit fhall this birtliright do to me ?

be with thee. 

4 And Jacob fent and called Rachel and Leah to 
the field utito his flock, 

5 And faid unto them, I fee your father's coun- 
tenance, tliat it h not toward me a3 before : but the 
God of my father hath been with me. 

6 And ye know, that with all my power I have 
ferved your father. 

7 And your father hath deceived me, and changed 
my wages ten times : but God fufFered him not to 
hurt me. 

8 If he faid thus.The fpeckled fhall be thy wa^es ; 
then all the catde bare fpeckled : and if he faid thus, 
The ring-flraked fhall be thy hircj tlien bare all the 
cattle ring-flraked. 

9 Thus God hath taken away the cattle of your 
father, and given them to me. 

ro And it came to pafs, at the time that the cattle 
conceived, that I lifted up mine eyes, and faw in a 
;^,., dream, and, behold, the \ rams which leaped upon 
the catde were ring-ftraked, fpeckled, and grifled. 

1 1 And the angel of God fpake unto me in a dream, 
faying^ Jacob. And I faid, Here am I. 

12 And he faid, Lift up now thine eyes and fee, All 
the rams which leap upon die cattle are ring-flraked, 
fpeckled, and grifled : for I have feen all that Laban 
doeth unto thee, 

13 1 am the God of Beth-el, ' where thou anointedfl: 
the pillar, and where thou vowedfl a vow unto me : 
now arife, get thee out from this land, and return 
unto tlie land of thy kindred. 

14 And Rachel and Leah anfwered and faid unto 
him, /; there yet any portion or inheritance for us in 
our father's houfe ? 

1 5 Are we not counted of him flrangers ? for 
he hath fold us, and hath quite devoured alfo our 
money. 

16 For all the riches which God hath taken from 
«ur father, that is ours, and our children's: now 
then, whatfoever God hath faid unto thee, do, 

17 fl Then Jacob rofe up, and fet his fons and his 
wives upon camels ; 

1 8 And he carried av/ay all his cattle, and all his 
goo'ls which he had gotten, the cattle of his getting, 
which he had gotten in Padan-aram, for to go to 
Ifaac his father in the land of Canaan. 

19 And Laban went to fhear his fheep: and Rachel 
^'f^;„. had llolen the f images that were her father's. 

+ Htt. 20 And Jacob flole away -f unawares to Laban the 
rf!uta, Syrian, in that he told him not that he fled. 

21 So he fkd with all that he had ; and he rofe up, 
and paffed over the river, and fet his face toward the 
mount Gilead. 

22 And it was told Laban, on the third day, that 
Jacob was fled. 

23 And he took his brethren with him, and pur- 
fiied after him feven days' journey; and they overr- 
took him in the mount Gilead. 

24 And God came to Laban the Syrian in a dream 
4 Het. by night, and fiud unto him. Take heed that thou 
t'lF.'^ ipeak'not to Jacob t either good or bad.

had pitched his tent in the mount : and Laban with '^'"'•^ 
his brethren pitched in tht mount of Gilead, >— .r— » 

26 And Laban fiid to Jacob, What haft thou 
done, that thou hall llolen away unawares to me 
and carried away my daugiuers as captives taken 
with die fword ? 

27 Wherefore didft thou flee away fecretly, and 
ffleal av/ay from me, and didft no: tell me, that;"^,-

29 It is in the power of my hand to do you hurt : 
but the God of your fathers fpake unto me yefter-

to Jacob either good or bad. 

30 And now, though thou wouldeft needs be eone^ 
becaufe thou fore longedft after thy father's houfe ; 
yet wherefore haft thou ftolen my goiis ?

take by force thy daughters from me. 

_ 32 With whomfoever thou flndeft thy gods let 
him not live: before our brethren difcern thou what 
is thine with me, and take it to thee. For Jacob 
knew not that Rachel had ftolen them. 

33 And Laban_ went into Jacob's tent, and into 
Leah's tent, and into the two maid-fervants' tents ; 
but he found them not. Then went he out of Leah's 
tent, and entered into Rachel's tent. 

34 Nov/ Rachel had taken the images, and put them 
in the cancels' furniture, and fat upon them. And 
Laban j-fearched all the tent, but found them not, +?="»* 

35 And fhe fiaid to her father, Let it not difpleafe '''" ' 
my lord that I cannot rife up before thee; for the 
cuftom of wornen is upon me. And he fearched, but 
found not the images. 

36 f And Jacob was wroth.and chode with Laban: 
and Jacob a)-ifv/ered and faid to Laban, What /; my

fued alter me ? 

37 Whereas thou haft fearched all my flxifF, what

38 This twenty years have I ^^t';^- with. thee; thy.,

eth for him : 36 he is fold to Potlphar in Egypt. 

ANd Jacob d\^elt in die land f wherein his father 
was a Ilnuiger, in die land of Canaan. 

2 Thefe are the generations of Jacob : Jofeph, being 
feventeen years old, was feeding the flock with liis 
J:rethren; and the ladT'.'jj witli the fens of BillipJi, 
and with the fons of Zilpah, his father's wives ; and 
Jofeph brought imto his father their evil report. 

3 Xow Ififael loved Jofeph more than all his chil- 
di en, becaufe he ti-as the fon of his old age : and he 
made him a coat of many \\ colours. 

4 And when his brethren faw that their fadier 
loved him more than all his brethren, they hated 
him, and could not fpeak peaceably unto him. 

5 -^ And Jofeph dreamed a dream, and he told it 
his brethren : and they hated him yet the more. 

6 And he faid unto them. Hear, I pray you, this 
,<3reain which I have dreamed: 

7 For, behold, we ivere binding fheaves in the field, 
and, lo, my flieaf arofe. and alfo flood upright ; and, 
behold, your fheaves flood round about, and made 
obcifance to my fheaf. 

8 And his brethren faid to him, Shalt thou indeed 
reign over us ? or fhalt thou indeed have domijiion 
ovL-r us ? And they hated him yet the more for his 
breams, and for his words. 

9 ^ And he dreamed yet another dream, and told 
it his brethren, and liiid. Behold, I have dreamed a 
dream more; and, behold, the fun, and the moon, 
and the eleven flars, made obcifance to me. 

10 And he told // to his father and to his brethren : 
and his father rebuked him, and faid unto him. What 
ii this dream that diou hafl dre;imcd ? Shall I, and 
thy mother, and thy brethren, indeed come to bow 
down ourfelves to thee to the earth ?

thee, where they feed their flocks. 

1 7 Aid the man faid, They are departed hence : for 
I hcard^ them fay, Let us go to Dothan. And Jofeph 
went after his brethren, and found them in Dothan. 

1 8 And when they fiiw him afar off, even before

of Pharaoh is cue : God hath fhewed Pharaoh what 
he /; about to do. 

26 Tlie feven good kine ^re feven years ; and the 
feven good ears are feven years : the dream is one.

8 Aiid with the blaft of thy noftrils the waters were

19 For the horfe.of Pharaoh wont in with his cha-

after their depardng out of the land of Egypt. 

2 And dre whole congregation of the children of Ifrael

3 And the children of Ifrael faid unto them. Would 
to God we had died by the hand of the Lord in the 
la!id of F,gypt, when we fat by the flel"h-pots, and 
wheti we did eat bread to die full : for ye have brought 
us forth into this wildernefs, to kill this whole allem-

4 % Then faid the Lord unto Mofes, Behold, I will 
rain bread from heaven for you ; and the people fhall go

hath brought you out from the land of Egypt. 

7 And in the morning, then ye fhall fee tne glory 
of the Lord ; for that he heareth your murmurings 
againft the Lord : and what are we, that ye murmur 
againft us ? 

8 And Mofes fiiid. This fhall be, when the Lord 
(hall give you in the evening flefh to eat, and in the 
morning bread to the full ; tor that the Lord hear- 
eth your murmurings which ye .murmur againft 
him : and what are we ? your miu-murings are not

9 ^ And Mofes fpake unto Aaron, Say unto all tlie

Id And it came to pafs, as Aaron fpuke unto the

16 "^ This is the thing which the Lord hath com- ^.^",'1" 
manded. Gather ot it every man according to his eat- \^°[-

18 And when they did mete it with an omer, "he ^.-i*?** 
that gathered much had nothing over, and he that 
gathered litdehad no lack: they gadicred every man 
according to his eating. 

19 And Mofes faid, Let no man leave of it till the 
morning. 

20 Notwithftanding, they hearkened not unto Mo- 
fes; but fome of them left of it until the morning, 
and it bred worms, and ftank ; and Mofes was wrom 
with them. 

21 And they gathered it every morning; every 
man according to his eating : and when the fun wax- 
ed hot it melted. 

22 ^ And it came to pafs, that on the fixth day they 
gathered twice as much bread, two omers for one 
man : and all the rulers of the congregation came and 
told Moles. 

23 And he faid unto them, This /; that which the 
L.ord hath faid, To-morrow /; the reft of the holy 
fabbath unto theLoRD : bake that which ye will bake 
to-day, and feethe that ye will feethe ; and that which 
remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the 
morning. 

24 And they laid it up till the morning, as Mofes 
bade : and it did not ftink, neither was tiiere any 
worm therein. 

25 And Mofes faid. Eat that to-day ; for to-da]" is 
a fabbath unto the Lord : to-day ye fhall not find it 
in the field. 

26 Six days ye fhall gather it ; but »n the feventh 
day zi'hich is the fabbath, in it there fhall be none. 

27 <|[ And it came to pafs, that there went out fome 

of the people on the feventh day for to gather, and ' : 

they found none. 

28 And the Lord faid unto Mofes, How long re- 
fufe ye to keep my commandments and my laws ? ' 

29 See, for that the Lord hath given you the fab- ' 
bach, therefore he giveth you on the fixth day the 
bread of two days : abide ye every man in his place ; 
let no mian go out of his place ou the feventh day. 

30 So the people refted on the feventh day. 

3 1 And the houfe of Ifrael called the name there- 
of Manna ; and it zvas like coriander-feed, v/hite; and

yet is he clean. 

42 And if there be in the bald head, or bald fore-

43 Then the prieft fhall look upon it : and, behold, 
ifiht rifin^ of the fore be white reddifh in his bald

8 ^ And the Lord fpake unto Aaron, Behold, I alfo

1 9 All the heave-offerings of the holy things, Avhich

" Hen came the children of Ifrael, fi'^« the whole

died there, and was buried there. 

2f And there was no water for the congregation: 
and they gathered themfelves togetlier againft Mofes, 
and againft Aaron. 

3 And the people =chode with Mofes, and fpake, 
faying, WoulciGod tliat we had died '' when our bre- 

■ thren died before the Lord ! 

4 And why have ye brought up the congregation 
of the Lord into this wildernefs, that we and our 
cattle Hiould die there ? 

5 And wherefore have ye made us to come up out 
•of Eg}'pt, to bring us in unto this evil place ^. it is no 

place of feed, or of figs, or of vijies, or of pomegra- 
nates; neither is there any water to drink. 

6 And Mofes and Aaron went from the prefence of 
the aflembly unto the door of the tabernacle of the 
congregation, and they fell upon their facesj and the 
glory of the Lord appeared unto them. 

7 ^ And the Lord fpake unto Mofes, faying,

out of the rock : fo thou ftialt give the congregation 
and their beafts drink. 

9 And Mofes took the rod from before the Lord, 
as he commanded him. 

10 And Mofes and Aaron gathered the congrega- 
tion together before the rock; and he faid unto them, 
Hear now, ye rebels; muft wc fetch you water out of 
this rock ? 

1 1 And Mofes lifted up his hand, and witli his rod 
he fmote the rock twice; and the water came out 
abundantly; and the congregation drank, and their 
beafts alfo. 

1 2^ And the Lord fpake unto Mofes and Aaron, 
Becaufe ye believed me not, to fmidiify me in the eyes 
of the children of Ifrael, therefore ye fhall not bring 
this congregation into the land which I have ^iven 
them. " 

13 ' This /; the water of II Meribah; becaufe the 
children of Ifrael ftrove with the Lord, and he was 
faniftified in them. 

14^ And Mofes fent menengers from Kadefh un- 
to the king of Edom, Thus faith thy brother Ifrael, 
Thou knoweft all the travel that hath j befallen us; 

1 5 How our fatliers went down into E gy pt, and we 
have dwelt in Egypt a long time; and the Egyptians 
vexed us, and our fatliers. 

36 And when we cried unto the Lord, h^ hesjd

forth out of Eg)-pt; and, behold, we are in Kadefh,

18 And Edom faid unto him, Thou fhalt not pafs

1 9 And the children of Ifrael faid unto him, Vv'e will 
go by the highway; and if I and my catile drink of

doing any thing elfe) go through on my feet. 

20 And he faid, Thou fhalt not go throu,:ih. And 
Edom cam* out againft him with much people, and 
with a ftrong hand.

15 ^ Take ye, therefore, good heed unto your-

thy God hath II divided unto all nations under die 
whole heaven. 

20 But the Lord hath taken you, and brought you 
forth out of the iron furnace, even out of Egypt, to be 
iinto him a people of inheritance, as ye are this day. 

21 Furthermore, the Lord was angry with me 
for your fakes, and fware that I Ihould not go over 
Jordan, and that I fhould not go in unto that good 
land which the Lord thy God giveth thee/ar an in- 
heritance : _ • 

2 2 But I muft die in this land, I muft not go over Jor-

23 Take heed unto yourfelves, left ye forget the

27 And the Lord fliall fcatter you among the na-

29 But if from thence thou fhalt feek the Lord

3 2 For aflc now of the days that are paft, which were 
before diee, fince the day that God created man upon 
the eardi, and ajli from die one fide of heaven unto 
the odier, whether there hath been any J'uch thing as 
this great thing is, or hath been heard like it.? 

33 Did ever people hear the voice of God fpeaking 
out of the m idft of the fire, as thou haft heard, and live? 

34 Or hath God afiayed to go andfxkt him a nation 
from the midft oi another nation, by temptations, by 
figns, and by wonders, and by war, and by a mighty 
hand, and by a {tretched-out arm, and by great ter- 
rors, according to all that the Lord your God did 
for you in Egypt before your eyes ? 

3 5 Unto thee it was fhewed,that thou m ighteft know 
diat the Lord he ;; God ; there is none el fe iDefides him. 

36 Out of heaven he made thee to hear his voice, 
that he might inftruit thee ; and upon eardi he fhew- 
ed thee his great fire, and thou heardeft his words 
out of the midft of tne fire. 

37 And bccaufe he loved diy fadiers, therefore he 
chofe their feed after them, and brought thee out in 
his fight with his mighty power out of Egypt; 

38 To drive out nations from before thee, greater 
and mightier than thou art, to bring thee in, to give 
thee dieir land/:r an inheritance, as // is this day. 

39 Know, therefore, this day, and confider // in thine 
heart, that the Lord he /; God in heaven above, 
and upon the earth beneath : there is none elfe. 

40 Thou fhalt keep, therefore, his ftatutes, and his 
commandments, which I command thee this day, that 
it may go well with tiiee, and widi thy children after 
thee, andthat thou mayeft prolong tJ^y days upon the 
earth, which the Lord thy God giveth thee, for ever. 

41 ^ Then Mofes fevered three cities on this fide 
Jordan, toward the fun-rifing ;

idc/atiy, 6 ami for the hoUriefi of the people. 9 God's 
mercy and jujHce a motive to obedience. 1 2 Buffings and 
victory ajftircd to them in return. 

WHcn the 'Lord thy God ftiall bring thee into -^.f!.:?* 
the Land whither thou goeft to poflefs it, and ' ' ' 
liath caft out many nations before thee, the Hittites, 
and the Girgafhites, and the Amorites, and the Ca- 
naanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and die 
Jebufites,feven nations greater and mightier than thou ; 

2 And when the Lord thy God fhall deliver them 
before thee, thou fhalt fniite tliem, and utterly deftroy 
them; '' thou (halt malce no covenant with them, nor '^f.T^. s. 
(hew mercy unto them; ^^' '* 

3 Neither (halt thou make marriages with them: 
thy daughter thou (halt not give unto his fon, nor his ■ 
daughter fhalt thou take unto thy fon. 

4 For they will turn away diy fon from following 
me, that they may ferve other gods ; fo will the anger 
of the Lord be kindled againft you, and deftroy tfiee 
fuddeniy. 

5_ But thus ftiall ye deal with them ; ye fhall deftroy 
their altars, and break down their f lavages, and cuty/^'J;;^,,- 
down their groves, and burn their graven images with '''■'■'"■* 
fire. 

6 ^ ' For thou art an holy people unto the Lord ^^^Th 
thy God : ^ the Lord thy God hath chofen thee to be '*• ''• 
a fpecial people unto himfelf above all people that are'^if.^^''' 
upon the face of the earth. \^ll^ 

7 The Lord did not fet his love upon you, nor 
choofe you, becaufe ye were more in number than 
any people; (for ye were the feweft of all people;) 

8 But becaufe the Lord loved you, and becaufe he 
would keep the oath which he had (worn unto)our 
fathers,hatn the Lord brought you out with a mighty 
hand, and redeemed yon out of the houfe of bond- 
men, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. 

9 51 Know, tI}erefore,that the Lord thy God, he is 
God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and 
mercy with them that love him, and keep his com- 
mandments, to a thoufand generations; 

10 And repayeth them that hate him to their facr-, 
to deftroy them : he will not be flack to liim that ha- 
teth him, he wiU repay him to his face, 

1 1 Thou fhalt, therefore, keep the commaudnienta, 
and the ftatutes, and the j udgments_, which I command 
thee this day, to do them. 

1 2 <f Wherefore it fhall come to pais, f if ye hear- t'l'L ;". 
ken to thefe judgments,and keep and do them, that 

the Lord thy God fhall keep unto thee the covenai:t 
and the mercy which he fware unto thy fathers. 

13 And he will love thee, and blefs diee,and mul- 
tiph' thee: he will alfo blefs the fruit of thy womb, 
and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and 
thine oil, the increafe of thy kine, and the flocks of thy 
fheep, in the land which he fware uato thyfathers to 
give thee. 

14TI10U fhalt be blefTed above all people: " there ! -i;f^-:!, 
fhall not be male or fem.ale barren among you,, or " 
among your cattle. 

1 5 And the Lord wilF take away from thee all

5 r^Iot for thy righteoufnefs, or for the iiprightnefs 
of thine heart, doft thou go to poUefs their JanJ ; but 
for the wickednefs of theie nations the Lord thy God 
doth drive them out from before thee, and tnat he 
niayjjerform the word which the Lord fware unto 
thy fathers, Abraham, Ifaac, and Jacob. 

6 Underltand, therefore, that die Lord thy God 
givcth thee not this good land to polTefs it for thy 
righteouliiefs ; for thou art a ftifF-necked people. 

7 f\ R.emember, and forget not, how thou provo- 
kedrt the Lord thy God to wrath in the wildernefs: 
from the dn.y that thou didll depart out of the land 
of Egypt, until ye came unto this place, ye have been 
rebellious againil the Lord. 

8 Alfo in Horeb ye provoked the Lord to wrath, 
fo that the Lord was angry with you, to have de- 
ftroyed you. 

9 When I was gone up into the mount to receive 
the tables of ftone, rijen the tables of the covenant 

j^l?''^ which the Lord made with you, then 'I abode in 

34- -iS- ' the mount fortv days and forty nights; I neither did 
eat bread nor drink water : 

i^lz^' ^° '' And the Lord delivered unto me two tables 
of ftone, written with the finger of God ; and on them 
was written according to all the v/ords which the Lord 
fpake with you in the mount, out of the midft of 
trie fire, in the day of the aflembly. 

1 1 And it came to pafs, at the end of forty days 
and forty nights, that the Lord gave me the two 
tn.bles of ftone, even the tables of the covenant. 

e^Esod. J 2 ^\nd the Lord faid unto me, "^ Arife, get thee 
down qwickly from hence; for thy people, which 
thou haft brought forth out of Egypt, have corrupt- 
ed themftlvcs : they are quickly turned afide out of 
. the v/ay which 1 commanded them ; they have made 
them a molten image. 

1 3 Furthermore, the Lord ipake unto me, faying, 
I have feentliis people, and, behold, it is a ftiff- 
necked people. 

14 Let me alone, that I may deftroy them, and 
blot but their name from under heaven ; and I will 
make of thee a nation mightier and greater than they. 

15 So I turned, and came down from the mount, 
and the mount burned with fire: and the tv/o tables 
of the covenant ivere in my two hands. 

16 And I looked, and, behold, ye had finned againft 
the Lord your God, a^id had made you a molten 
calf: )e had turned afide quickly out of the v/ay 
which the Lord had commanded you. 

17 And I took the two tables, and caft them out 
of my two hands, and brake them before your eyes. 

1 8 And I fell dov/n before the Lord, as at the firft, 
forty days and forty nights : I did neither eat bread 
iior drink water, bccaufe of all your fins which ye 
finned, in doing wickedly in the fight of the Lord, 
to provoke him to anger. 

19 (For I was afraid of the anger and hot difplea- 
fiu-e wherewith the Lord was wroth againft you to 
deftroy you^ But the Lord hearkened unto me at 
that time alio. 



P. IX, X. f?:s prayer for the people. 

20 And the Lord was very angry with Aaron to t-f/j^VsV 
have deftroycd him: and I prayed' for Aaron alfo '-■;•■■• 
the fame tin;e. ^"""^ 

21 And I took yoiir fin, the calf which ye had 
made, and burnt it with fire, and ftamped it, and 
ground it very fmaU, even until it was as frnall as duft : 
and I caft the duft thereof into the brook that dc- 
fcended out of the mount. 

22 And at ' Taberah, and at f MafTuh, and at •> Kib- f ^™'-' 
roth-hattaavah, ye provoked the Lo.ru to Avrath. g'F,x',d.' 

23 Likewife, when the Lord fent yon from Ka- '^■^■ 
defh-barnea, feying, Go up and pofiefs the land \u"J'^'' 
which I have given you ; then ye rebelled againft 

the commandment of the Lord your God, and ye 
believed him not, nor hearkened to his voice. 

24 Ye have been rebellious againft the Lord from 
the day that I knew you. 

25_ Thus I fell down before the Lord forty days 
and forty nights, as I fell down at the firji; becaufe 
the Lord had faid he would deftroy you. 

26 I pra}'ed, therefore, unto the Lord, and faid, .. 

Lord God, deftroy not thy people, and thine in- 
heritance, which thou haft redeemed through thy 
greatnefsj which thou haft brought forth out of 
Egypt with a mighty hand. 

27 Remember thy fervants, Abraham, Ifaac, and 
Jacob : look not unto the ftubbornnefs of this people, 
nor to their wickednefe, nor to their fin ; 

28 Left the land whence thou broughteft us out fay, 

' Becaufe the Lord was not able to bring them into the j ^"'j'^'f'- 
land which he promifed them, and becaufe he hated ^ ' ' 
them, he hath brought them out to fiay them in the 
wildernefs. 

29 Yet they are thy people, and thine inheritance, 
which thou broughteft out by thy might)- power, and 
by thy ftretched-out arm.

will foriake me, and break my covenantwhich I have 
made with dieni. 

I - Then my anrer fliall be kindled acrainft them in

\iu%w:. evils and troubles ihall t befall them; fo that they will 
lay in tnat day. Are not thele evils come upon us be- 
came our God is not among us ? 

1 S And I vriil furely hide my face in that day, for 
all the e\-iis \vliich dicy Aall have wrought, in that 
tliey are turned luito other gods. 

I'g Now, therefore, v,-rite ye this fong for you, and 
teach it the children of Ifrael : putit in their inouths, 
that this long may be a witneis for me againft the

land which I fware unto their fathers, that fiowetla with 
milk and honey, and they lliall ha\'e eaten, and filled 
tiiemfel'/es, and waxen tat ; then will tliey turn unto

"^"' gotten out of the mouths of their feed: for I know

before I Have brought them i nto the land which I 

Iware. 

22 C Mofes, therefore, wrote this fong the fame

'23 And he gave Jolhua the fun of Nun a charge, 
V^'^ and faid, 'Be llrong, and of a good courage; for thou

24 C And it came to pafs, when Mofes had made 
an end of writiiig the words of this law in a book, 
undl they were hnifhed, 

25 That Mofes commanded the Levites, which bare 
the ark of the covenpjitof the Lord, faying,

And the men went up and viewed Ai.

4 So there went up thither of the people about three

haft thou at all brought this people over Jordan, to 
deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to dcftroy

on the other fide Jordan ! 

8 O Lord, what fhall I fay, when Ifrael turncth their

9 For the Cauaanites, and all the inhabitaiits of the 
land, fhall hear of it, and fhall environ us round, and 
cutoff our name from the earth: and what wilt thou 
do unto thy great name ? 

1 ^ And the Lord faid unto Jofhua, Get thee up ;

1 1 Ifrael hath finned, and they have alfo tranfgrefTed 
my covenant which I commanded them: fortheyhave 
even taken of the, accurfed thing, and have alio ftolen, 
and diffembled alfo, and they Hkve put // even among 
their own ftufF. 

12 Therefore the children of Ifrael could not fT:and 
before their enemies, but turned thfir backs before 
their enemies, becaufe they were accurfed : neither 
will I be with you any more, except ye deftroy the 
accui-fcd from amfcng you. 

1 3 LTp, fandify the people, and fay, Sanftify your-

O Ifrael ; thou caiiiT: not ftand before thine enemies, 
until ye takeaway the accurfed thing from among you.

Recording to your tribes; and it fliall be,;'/v;/ the tribe 
wlilch the Lord taketh fhall come according to the

which the Lord fhall take fhall come man by man. 

15 And it Ihall be, that he that is t:'ken with the

he hath; becaufe he hath tranfgrefT.d the covenant 

'SkIj J. of the Lord, and becaulc he hath wrought || folly in

brought Ifrael by their tribes ; and the tribe of Judah 

was taken:

taken : 

1 8 And he brought his houfehold man by man ; and 
Achan the fon of Carmi, the fon of Zabdi, the fon of 
Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, was taken. 

ig 4 And Jofhua faid unto Achan, My fon, give, 
I pray thee, glor/ to the Lord God of Ifrael, and 
make confeffion unto him: and tell me now what 
thou haft done ; hide it not from me. 

20 And Achan anfwered jofhua, and faid. Indeed 
I have finned againft the Lord God of Ifrael, and thus 
and thus have I done : _ 

2 1 When I faw among the fpoils a goodly Babylonifh 
garment, and two hundred fhekels of filver, and a 

t wedge of gold of fifty fhekels weight, then I coveted L"a^ 
them, and took them : and, behold, they are hid in the 
earth in the midft of my tent, and the filver under it. 

22^ So Jofhua fent meflengers, and they ran unto 
the tent; and, behold, it was fiid in his tent, and the 
lilver under it.

and brought them unto Jofliua, and unto all the chil-

25 Andjoiliua faid, Why haft thou troubled us? 
the Lord fhall trouble thee this day. And all Ifrael 
itoned him with Itones, and burned them with fire 
after they had ftoiied them with ftones. 

26 And they raifed over him a great heap of itones
